Queen of the Limoncello, neighbor of Pompeii and facing the island of Capri: under the names of Gulf of Mermaids or Garden of Delights, the Sorrentine Peninsula is a wild gem in the south of Italy. It’s in this mythical place valued by Byron, Ibsen or Wagner that the villa Giulia defies the Mediterranean Sea, a few minutes from the center of Sorrente or the Marina Grande haven.Learn more
From its stony promontory, the villa Auguste offers a 270 ° view from the Mount Vesuvius to the Gulf of Naples. In the 30 000 m square garden, palm trees and cypresses caresses the Renaissance sculptures and the antic fountains, a shrine to the pools and different places to relax. A hundred of stairs down, a natural pool nestles in its grotto, with a direct access to the beach and a private pier.
Paying a tribute to the Roman history as well as to the Italian, the villa Giulia opens onto a marble hall with many pillars. Nearby, a living room with painted walls catches the light coming in from the French windows, spreading the horizon until it reaches the desk on which the declaration of the first Italian government has been signed. A kitchen with vaulted ceilings is adjacent to two dining rooms underlined by a terrace with an outdoor kitchen.
The large marble stairs open onto three floors distributing six double rooms with their own bathroom. Wood marquetry floors, antic sculptures and painted walls with sculpted wainscoting stand under coffered ceilings, filtering the sunlight shining in from windows curtained by heavy drapes. Choosing to bow toward the garden’s vegetation or the immensity of the Mediterranean Sea.
“There is music in the sighing of a reed; there is music in the gushing of a rill; there is music in all things, if men had ears.” Lord Byron couldn’t have described in a better way the melody whispered by the villa Auguste from its roof-terrace, a historic palazzio in an unspoiled nature.
